COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Everything we love about classic German Pilsner with a hoppy Bohemian twist. Pils is a bright straw colored lager beer with playful carbonation topped with beautiful white foam lace. Delicate lightly toasted malt flavors underscore noble German hop character. Hallertau-grown Magnum hops deliver the lupulin foundation while generous amounts of Spalter Select hops bring floral aromatic and spicy herbal notes. As a twist on the traditional Pils, we dry hop with German Saphir for a touch of bergamot zest and lemongrass. A refreshing, light-bodied and hop-driven Pils.

gendv138 (1191) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - JAN 21, 2014
Bottle (bottled 10/8/13) poured into a tulip. Pours a clear straw yellow with a finger off-white head. Nice lacing for a pils. Good carbonation streaming up the glass. Smells of lemon/lime citrus, wheat, hay/barnyard. Tastes of lemon/lime citrus, piney hops, grassy, lager yeast, herbs, spices. Light body but not quite thin.

12 ounce bottle. Pours a nice clear light gold with a fluffy white head. Aroma of malt, grain, and floral. Taste is malt, grain, floral, spice, and grass. Clean and crisp. Very good Pilsener.

LtDan (1784) - Los Angeles County, California, USA - JAN 4, 2014
Appearance: pours bright clear yellow gold with a modest sized tight white head.

Aroma: Big grassy Euro hop nose, biscuits and a touch floral.

Taste: Mixture of grassy herbal and spicy hops. Very dry pale malt. Bready. Mouth slapping twang finishes with sharp clean bitterness. That twang brings you back quickly for the next sip (or gulp.)

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with average carbonation, not too rough for a pils.

Overall: Great googly moogly! So drinkable, so tasty, just clean sturdy crisp beer. I’ve been sucking back Firestone’s pale offerings for years now with great joy, and am glad they’ve mixed it up with less sweet malt and Euro hops to break away from Pale 31/Union/Double Jack. You may have a person in your life who is leery about jumping into craft beer, this might just be the beer that converts them.

Nice and light, but not light on flavor. The little hops kick works really well with this pilsner and I can see this one working it’s way into my summer rotation. Here’s how it looked: http://teamchug.com/?p=824

tmoreau (2366) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - JAN 2, 2014
12 oz. bottle poured to a fest goblet, displaying a clear golden, almost straw color, with a presentable layer of white, bubbly head froth, and waves & spots of lacing. The aroma was a light Pils/lager nose, with light grain, and subtle spiciness. The flavor presented a moderate hop bitterness that was earthy & dry, with some lingering qualities. Light bodied, with lively effervescence that highlighted the hop, and some subtle citrus & zestiness that combined with the dryness to produce a nicely clean & crisp finish. A very appealing, palate awakening Pils.

12oz bottle. Pours straw colored, nice hoppy bite to the nose. Taste is clear, crisp pilsner. It’s a really well crafted pilsner.

Kind of scary to look at, as so many straw-colored, crystal-clear pilsners are so awfully mediocre. Smells bread and vaguely of German lager yeasts, just a hint more spicy in odor than most pilsners. Taste is clean and uncomplicated: smooth grain, a hint of sweet malt, and a grassy hop kiss. Nice and light on the palate like it should be. A really nice, uncluttered and non-skanky pils that one could drink all afternoon on a hot day (though I write this in the dead of winter). Makes my list of 10 best pilsners.
